every democracy has to sustain its mechanism of checks and balances in the way it operates and whether individuals are designated left or right is regardless. But we also have to be cognizant of the country's security concerns and sometimes this takes precedence. Of course, over reactions can also result unjustifiably. We all know however that the uproar that we have to deal with the "delegitimization" issues concerning Israel wouldn't be a concern if we had already settled the Middle East dispute decades ago - but perhaps we were not ready as this time around. Let's hope something positive materializes before the situation becomes more disheartening.
